Foundation for California Community CollegesThe Foundation for California Community Colleges has negotiated a very aggressive discount on the Cisco Umbrella/OpenDNS solution available through the Foundation’s CDW-G contract (CB-185-15).

Threats from ransomware are increasing and causing our college districts time, money and energy to combat this growing problem. OpenDNS is an effective solution to defend the assets of our system.

Previously, the most aggressive pricing model we have seen from OpenDNS has been $20.44/seat (licensed by full-time faculty and full-time staff; students covered for free). The new Foundation-negotiated pricing is $12/seat.

If you are unfamiliar with the OpenDNS tool, additional information can be found at For information about this and other products available to the colleges through the Foundation’s CollegeBuys program, please contact Jorge Burwick, Program Specialist, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
